Joe went to see a doctor to complain of some headaches. After examining him, the doctor had both good and bad news for Joe.
“Joe, the good news is I can cure your headaches,” the doctor said. “The bad news is that it will require castration. You have a very rare condition which causes your testicles to press on your spine, and the pressure creates one hell of a headache. The only way to relieve the pressure is to remove the testicles.”
Joe was both shocked and devastated by this, and he immediately wondered if he had any reason to live anymore. Realizing he had no choice, however, he went under the knife.
Once the procedure was over, Joe found that he was without a headache for the first time in 20 years, but he felt like he was missing an important part of himself. He immediately realized he felt like a different person, and that he could make a new beginning and live a new life.
When Joe walked by a male clothing store, he thought to himself, “That’s what I need… A new suit.” He then walked into the store and told the salesman, “I’d like a new suit.”
After looking at him briefly, the elderly tailor said, “Let’s see…size 44 long.”
“That’s right, how did you know?” Joe said with a laugh.
“Been in the business 60 years!” the tailor replied.
After trying on the suit, Joe found that it fitted perfectly. While Joe looked at himself in the mirror, the salesman asked, “How about a new shirt?”
“Sure,” Joe said after thinking for a moment.
The tailor once again looked Joe up and down for a second and said, “Let’s see, 34 sleeves and 16-1/2 neck.”
“That’s right, how did you know?” Joe said with surprise.
“Been in the business 60 years,” the tailor told him. After trying on the shirt, Joe found that it fit perfectly. As Joe looked at himself in the mirror, the salesman asked, “How about some new underwear?”
“Sure,” Joe said after thinking for a minute.
“Let’s see…size 36,” the salesman said after eyeing him again.
“Ah ha! I got you, I’ve worn a size 34 since I was 18 years old,” Joe said.
Shaking his head, the salesman said, “You can’t wear a size 34. A size 34 would press your testicles up against the base of your spine and give you one hell of a headache.”
